Crabtree, Andy, Mortier, Richard, Rodden, Tom and Tolmie, Peter (2012): Unremarkable networking: the home network as a part of everyday life. In: Proceedings of DIS12 Designing Interactive Systems 2012. pp. 554-563. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2317956.2318039

This paper extends the focus of current research into home networks. It represents a shift in perspective from the home network as something that is essentially understood as a technological object by the inhabitants of the home, to something that is understood by household members as a sociological object wrapped up in the organisation of their everyday lives. This shift in perspective is significant. It moves the focus of design from developing home network technologies that better support users' management of the home network and the devices that hang off it, to developing home network technologies that support household members' management of everyday life and the social activities that compose it. Through a range of ongoing ethnographic studies we elaborate this turn to the social, and a number of sensitising concerns informing the continued development of home network technologies.

Mortier, Richard, Rodden, Tom, Tolmie, Peter, Lodge, Tom, Spencer, Robert, Crabtree, Andy, Sventek, Joe and Koliousis, Alexandros (2012): Homework: putting interaction into the infrastructure. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 197-206. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/2380116.2380143

This paper presents a user driven redesign of the domestic network infrastructure that draws upon a series of ethnographic studies of home networks. We present an infrastructure based around a purpose built access point that has modified the handling of protocols and services to reflect the interactive needs of the home. The developed infrastructure offers a novel measurement framework that allows a broad range of infrastructure information to be easily captured and made available to interactive applications. This is complemented by a diverse set of novel interactive control mechanisms and interfaces for the underlying infrastructure. We also briefly reflect on the technical and user issues arising from deployments.
